Lingmotif 2



Sentiment Analysis made easy

Lingmotif 2 is the result of Project FFI2016-78141-P on Sentiment Analysis funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, developed by the Tecnolengua Group at the University of Málaga.

We aim to obtain high-coverage, high-quality lexical resources for Sentiment Analysis with a friendly interface.



Lingmotif is a web application (https://lingmotif.com) that analyzes input texts from a Sentiment Analysis perspective. Basically, it determines the semantic orientation of a text (whether it is positive or negative, and to what extent), by detecting linguistic expressions of polarity, i.e., positivity or negativity.

Unlike most Sentiment Analysis software, Lingmotif is not “just” a classifier, meaning it doesn’t simply classify an input text as positive or negative, it also offers a rich set of quantitative data, a visualization of the “sentiment profile” of the text(s) (including time series), and a detailed qualitative analysis showing text items that were detected as having some kind of semantic orientation. Lingmotif generates HTML files as output, so they can be viewed and searched using any standard browser.

These features make Lingmotif quite unique and make it useful for a wide range of applications.

Currently, Lingmotif is able to analyze English and Spanish textsparallel2


Some of the things you can do with Lingmotif:

  • Obtain an objective measure of a text’s semantic orientation (polarity) and sentiment intensity.
  • Discover the “sentiment profile” or flow of a text.
  • Extract all topics and entities from a set of texts.
  • Custom specific-domain (e.g., finance, restaurant reviews, etc.) sentiment analysis with our plugin manager.
  • Aspect-based sentiment analysis (ABSA).
  • Analyze multiple text files or datasets.
  • Generate a positive/negative sentiment wordcloud.
  • Find out unusually positive/negative sections of a text.
  • Compare the evaluative language of different speakers/authors.
  • Study the evolution of a speaker’s/author’s evaluative language.
  • Classify large collections of short texts (e.g. tweets) according to their polarity.
  • Plot any data set (e.g. a time series) against a Lingmotif series.
  • Publish your results on the Web immediately (Lingmotif output is HTML/Javascript).
